  9. Dinosaur eggs from Guizhou

    Are these dinosaur eggs? They are from Guizhou, China. About 18cm long. Possibly eggs of Sauropods?
  10. Wear Facets On Rebbachisaurus teeth

    I've been reading a few papers on Sauropods and the topic of wear facets got me thinking. I own 30 plus Rebbachisaurus teeth and only two of them have labial wear facets. Every other tooth with a wear facet has a lingual wear facet. That doesn't really make any sense to me. For most sauropods with tooth to tooth contact, the upper teeth will have a lingual wear facet and the lower teeth will have labial. It could be that I just happen to own mostly upper teeth but I don't think so. Most every Rebbachisaurus tooth you see has a lingual wear facet. Any thoughts on that.
  11. Dinosaur material from Uzbekistan is becoming a bit more available to the collector. Most of the material being offered for sale are theropod teeth with the occasional claw, see my post from earlier this year. Sauropod material has yet to hit the market but my bet is that will change if there is a profit to be made. A new paper that will soon be published identifies teeth from several countries in Central Asia including Uzbekistan. The material shown below comes from the same towns and formation the theropod material comes from: The Bissekty Formation, Touronian in age from the Kyzylkum Desert. The material is identified as Titanosaurid indet. and has not been assigned to any specific taxon simply because of the lack of diagnostic material. They do comment that vertebrae found in these localities bear affinities to two Chinese sauropods Dongyangosaurus sinensis and Baotianmansaurus henanensis. All of the teeth from Uzbekistan are small, narrow-crowned, 'pencil-shaped' , some with wear facets. Only these type of teeth are know from this region. Scale bars: 1 mm Map of localities were sauropod material was found: Reference: Averianov, A., Sues, H.-D., Review of Cretaceous sauropod dinosaurs from Central Asia, Cretaceous Research (2016), doi: 10.1016/j.cretres.2016.09.006. Doushantuo provide this paper in one of his links, more focused on the Bissekty Fm https://www.researchgate.net/publication/308013044_Sauropod_teeth_from_the_Upper_Cretaceous_Bissekty_Formation_of_Uzbekistan
  12. Dino Flatulence

    Last year researchers published a paper suggesting that sauropod dinosaurs would have made a contribution to climate change in the Mesozoic by producing as much as 520 million tons of methane gas. However, little research has been done into the fossil sites where accumulations of coprolites are associated with sauropods proving that sauropods produced enough methane gas to warm the earth. Are there any fossil sites around the world where sauropod remains have been found in association with multiple coprolites? If so, then we might hypothesize that the biggest flatulence by sauropod dinosaurs may have been due to the fact that the sauropods that were physically exhausted after long migrations across barren landscapes may have consumed too much plant material. Note: If a Chinese gas company found a turiasaur skeleton in Xinjiang that is associated with coprolite pyramids, then that sauropod would be named Gasotitan (just as Gasosaurus was named because it was found by a Chinese gas company).
